Motorcycle Rider Risks


According to reports from The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2017 alone, there were 5,172 motorcycle fatalities and 89,000+ motorcycle injuries.  Since  motorcycle riders are not physically protected like automobile drivers, the risk of severe injury and death is increased 35 times in motorcycle accidents.   For more information on motorcycle safety statistics and injuries visit:  http://www-nrd.nhtsa.dot.gov


Motorcycle Accidents: A Variety of Causes  


Motorcycle accidents can occur as a result of negligence by the motorcyclist or other automobile drivers.  The main causes of motorcycle accidents are:  (1) Poor weather; (2) Ignoring driving laws; (3) Use of alcohol when riding; (4) Lack of riding experience; (5) Motorcycle/Road defects; and (6) Reduced visibility of motorcyclist on the road in comparison to vehicles.


Use of Helmets


A large number of motorcycle fatalities are a result of brain injury and severe trauma to the head.  Statistics show that in 2008, 43% of all motorcycle accident fatalities occurred because the motorcyclists were NOT wearing a helmet.  In California, the California Vehicle Code requires the use of a helmet while riding a motorcycle.  Recovery of damages after a motorcycle accident may be limited by California state law if it is discovered that the motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.


In the event of an accident, it is important for injured motorcyclists to have effective legal representation and receive proper medical attention as soon as possible.
